ManageSoft Launches Enterprise Compliance Manager™

Optimizes Purchases, Maintenance Renewals and Provides Audit Protection

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 20, 2007) - ManageSoft -- the leading supplier of Enterprise Software Management solutions -- announced today the launch of its new Enterprise Compliance Manager product ("ECM"). ECM goes beyond license entitlement -- validation of license terms against software installations -- to optimize software purchases and renewals across global enterprises.

Savings are exposed by correlating multiple data sources from a company's IT and procurement domains. Asset inventory and software usage data are analyzed in conjunction with purchasing information: license value, length, type, and use limitations. ManageSoft adds its application recognition and license recognition libraries to this data reservoir. ECM's license entitlement engine reports any license breaches, under or over license situations, unauthorized software, and software usage per application, per location or across the enterprise. Its optimization unit then uncovers potential savings considering contract terms, pending maintenance renewals, and different license types available.

"Enterprise Compliance Manager raises the bar from asset management to asset optimization. Our license entitlement engine is the keystone of the product that provides accountability between purchases and allocations," declared Alan Swahn, vice president of marketing and business development at ManageSoft. "The optimization unit is a breakthrough technology that unmasks the potential savings previously hidden in a sea of legal terms and license scope."
